 Father blames hand sanitizer for fire that hurt daughter story image
OREGON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Investigators are trying to figure out what caused an 11-year-old girl to catch on fire in a hospital and her father believes hand sanitizer may be to blame.

The girl was in an Oregon hospital to receive treatment after recently falling and hitting her head.

Her father says she was painting in her room when she suddenly came running out with her clothes in flames.

"I heard fire and burning and when I sat up she was running out the door toward the nurses station," said Steven Lane. "All I could think of was I have to put it out."

The girl suffered third degree burns to 18-percent of her body. Her father says before the fire started she had been cleaning a table with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Investigators believe static electricity may have ignited that liquid.
